I guess we aren’t the only ones slightly obsessed with hotel pools. It seems come May / June (and then again in August), almost every editorial calendar has a slot for a Hotel Pool Roundup.

This one, from is mixed–a bunch of ordinary-ish pools mixed in with some true gems. The Grand Wailea is high on our bucket list, with the water elevator, rope swing, rapids and loads of caves.

This is the photo everyone loves to share (understandably so!):

Grand Wailea Hilton, Maui

Also on the Boston list that we hadn’t really heard about: The Westin Diplomat in Hollywood, Florida, with a see-through bottom, and the W hotel, Ft. Lauderdale with an aquarium style pool that allows you to watch your kids (or friends) swim like Nemo (before he gets found),  in an illuminated box on some countertop somewhere:

W Hotel Ft. Lauderdale

We definitely want to check that one out!
